I have http packet, in which for Content-Encoding used "xpress". Wireshark doesn't uncompress these packets. I searched in cource code and found code for lz77 decompression, but does Wireshark support Xpress compression?

Xpress appears to be a modified LZ77 compression algorithm, but isn't currently supported by the HTTP dissector.

If you want it to be supported, please raise an enhancement request at the Wireshark Bugzilla, attaching your capture.
